Heike GrebeAuthor, Director und Producer
Born in 1986 on the very day of the huge Chernobyl disaster, Heike’s path has always been defined by the wish to “do things differently”. As a child she collected animals too slow to escape and “nursed” them lovingly. When finishing her studies of journalism and media communication in 2009 she did not realize that her love of animals would lead her to wildlife film. Not until 2011, when the production company Blue Planet Film assigned her to oversee the organization of a large wildlife film project on the Congo River, was her path cemented. Four years after its finalization she went freelance and together with a colleague founded the company “Flying Pangolin Film”.
